See Clearly, Live Confidently: The Essential Guide to Your Second Pair of Eyeglasses

Your Second Pair of Eyeglasses BlogIn the world of eyewear, foresight is 20/20. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, having a backup pair is not just a luxury — it's a necessity. Read on to uncover compelling reasons why having a second pair of eyeglasses is the smartest move for your vision.

Accidents Happen: Be Prepared

Despite their delicacy, eyeglasses are an integral part of our everyday lives. However, they are also susceptible to unexpected accidents — drops, bends, and twists that can catch us off guard. Picture a scenario where a playful child decides to test the flexibility of your glasses. A spare pair is your shield against such unpredictable moments, ensuring you're always prepared, especially when the unexpected occurs.

Sharp Focus Up Close: Addressing Presbyopia

As the years gracefully advance, so does the gradual weakening of our near vision, a phenomenon known as presbyopia. Activities like reading, intricate handwork, or engaging in a captivating gaming session become increasingly challenging. A second pair of glasses, finely tailored for close-up work, acts as a dedicated ally in navigating the intricate details of your hobbies and daily activities, ensuring you experience the world up close with clarity.

Digital Eye Strain Defense: Protecting Your Eyes

In the digital age, our eyes bear the brunt of prolonged screen exposure, leading to the notorious digital eye strain. Symptoms include eye fatigue, headaches, and blurred vision, with the potential for more severe discomfort. At Wesson and Mothershed Eye Center, we understand the unique challenges of the digital era, and that's why we offer the best defense against digital eye strain.

Our custom digital lenses, crafted right here in our practice, stand out as the pinnacle of eye care technology. Specifically tailored for computer vision and blue light protection, these lenses feature cutting-edge anti-reflective coating and blue-light filtering capabilities. We take pride in providing the best digital lenses in the country!

Contact Lens Backup: A Reliable Plan B

A backup pair of eyeglasses is a reliable contingency plan for contact lens wearers. In the event of an eye infection, a forgotten lens during travel, or an unexpected tear, a spare pair steps in as a trusted ally. Embrace the versatility of eyeglasses as your go-to solution when circumstances necessitate a break from contact lens wear. It's a simple yet effective strategy to ensure uninterrupted, clear vision.

Polarized Glasses: Stylish UV Protection

Explore the world with style and essential eye protection with polarized glasses. Essential for safeguarding your vision after cataract surgery, these glasses offer more than just a fashion statement. UV protection becomes paramount, especially in the weeks following the procedure. We recommend wearing sunglasses during the crucial four weeks before the final post-operative visit.

This precautionary measure benefits post-cataract patients and those at risk of cataract surgery in the coming years or months. Investing in quality sunglasses isn't just about enjoying the world with style; it's a proactive step towards long-term visual health, providing a critical defense against conditions like macular degeneration.

Medicare Benefits and Vision Plans: A Smart Approach

Are you aware that Medicare can assist with the expense of your prescription eyeglasses? At Wesson and Mothershed Eye Center, we ensure you get the most out of your benefits by providing high-quality eyewear tailored to your needs. Moreover, vision plans can cover the cost of glasses, which is advantageous for obtaining second pairs as they come with discounts. Choose wisely for your vision and budget by selecting Wesson and Mothershed Eye Center.
